So does this mean that it will drive down the prices of the "big three" 35mm 1.4 lenses from Canon, Nikon and Sony? I was planning to buy the 35L today but this news came in. I wouldn't really justify the high cost of 35L, or other OEM 35mm 1.4 lenses for that matter, if this particular lens would perform even just marginally better in terms of sharpness and control of CA (regardless of whether the QC is still crapola or not). So what will be the difference considering the cheaper price?

And yes, I hate waiting. I wish I hadn't read this news actually. :c

philippaopao: From a commenter on the 6D's press release video on YouTube:

"Canon, this is CLEARLY an inferior product to your competitor in Nikon the D600. It is insulting that you push this as even a competitor to that camera. WHY aren't you competing!?! the 5dII is not far away from this product... i am at a loss for words here... damn it Canon.."

Oh well, and to think that this 6D sits at the same price range as the D600 makes it weird if not, depressing, haha.

To quote a commenter from another site, "Pixel-peeping has finally reached Mars!"

Oh well, I bet when NASA sends a higher megapixel camera on mars, or even on another planet, people will still complain about resolution.

Higuel: Amazing work!
And the fact that you did it with so accessible equipment only gives it more value and more credit to you.
Congratulations!!! :)

PS: i would like to know how you close the diaphragm with the lens reversed, because i would like to try it also(then it would be possible for me to start experimenting with macro also! :D Thanks!

PSII: Could you also tell what is the puffer diffuser?
Thanks again!!! :)

Thanks! For the aperture control, I attach my lens normally first, then set the aperture, after that I press and hold my DOF preview button while I take the lens out; the aperture blades will stay in the aperture you've set them to.

As for the lighting I just used a cheap knock-off of the Gary Fong puffer diffuser. Shooting with a naked built-in flash wouldn't help because the lens barrel would block the light. http://static3.henrys.com/ImageCache/Products4625-1300x1300-127360.jpg
